Too many individuals and businesses today are trapped in the transactional economy—the place where standards are flexible and relationships last only as long as it takes to close the deal. This focus on short-term gain can be catastrophic on us all. Without a deeper foundation, our trust is crushed by every scandal, deceit and integrity dip, and in much of corporate America we’re left numb by the constant pressure to grow faster and sell more. 

But there’s another way. Individuals and organizational cultures are changing, embracing a new values-driven approach to our careers we call the Values Economy. Choosing Higher Ground is a handbook for those who want to incorporate values into their personal lives and daily organizational practices, and are finally ready to embark on the path to a greater calling.

Ascend with us to a place where your work can have meaning and success can be sustainable for everyone. This is the sacred ground where our work is entirely personal because that’s the only business approach that ultimately matters. And where the view from the top is of something we’ve long since forgotten is even possible – joy.
